Travelling in the Balearics
It is easy to get to and travel around the Balearics. Ferries go from Barcelona, Denia and Valencia to the islands and ferries travel in between the islands, meaning there's no excuse not to explore the Balearics.
There are plenty of local buses available on each of the islands. Ibiza has buses all through the night, providing safe transport to people enjoying the nightlife that the island has to offer. The popular Soller railway runs throughout Mallorca, and is perfect for any tourist that wants to explore the whole island.
Things to See
There are many things to see in the Balearics, starting with Ibiza. Unknown to most, there is a lot more to this island than just partying and nightclubs. Take a trip in the afternoon to see the old part of Ibiza Town in all its glory or maybe escape the town altogether and enjoy the almost unexplored countryside of Ibiza. However, if clubbing is your thing, go to San Antonio where the bars, clubs and nightlife are considered the best in Europe before sleeping off your hangover on the beach.
The main attraction to Majorca is its capital, Palma, where many say is worth a trip on its own with lots of shopping and dining to be done. Although if that's not your thing, the mountains of Majorca are home to some of the prettiest villages in Europe including Soller and Valldemossa or perhaps hike along the rough mountain routes of the Serra de Tramuntara.
Menorca is renowned for its gin and a trip to the Xoriguer Gin Distillery is a well-worth trip for gin lovers! For history lovers, a trip to the Museu de Menorca contains the earliest history of the island. Like all the other Balearic Islands, Menorca has incredible beaches too and also a large town and port, Maó or Mahon, is noted for its bars and restaurants.
